Last fall I purchased a road bike so I could start getting my stamina up for my next belt test in karate. After procrastinating for a little over half a year, I finally started riding. Normally when I go out I am in my biking shorts and some sort of t-shirt, since I always thought [...]

My son finally took up an interest in learning to ride a bike, so I've been looking into ways to increase visibility.  Bright clothing and reflectors are important, but a wild array of LED lights on the wheel?  This could be hard to ignore!

Some time ago, Kingsley Fiegert was out riding his bicycle when someone in a passing car leaned out and shot him with a slingshot.  Kingsley was understandably in shock and in a great deal of pain, and he didn't have the presence of mind to note the car's license plate.  Kingsley and his business partner, Andrew Hagen, [...]

musguard-bike-fender-2

If you're a bike commuter, you know how a sudden rainstorm can wreck your day.  If your bike doesn't have a rear fender, you can end up with mud, water, or road grease sprayed up the back of your clothing - not how you want to show up for a meeting or your work day. [...]

If you have a garage, storing your bicycle isn't really a problem.  You can just park it inside or you can hang it on the wall on hooks or hangers.  Those wall hangers don't look very attractive, but it doesn't matter if they are in the garage.  What if you live in an apartment and [...]
